Praying Mantis
Bobby McAndrews
1993

An effective thriller as we watch the mysterious Linda Crandall (Seymour) shift identities and draw husband No. 6 into her web, setting him up for her typical wedding night dose of venom, usually arsenic.

Her motive is murky, but it clearly has something to do with a miserable childhood that ruined her concept of men for good. Mysterious background Seymour plays Linda as a rather introverted writer of romance novels who becomes involved with Don (Barry Bostwick), a widower who runs a chain of bookstores.

Don is a little confused when he can't find any of Linda's novels in print, but she explains it away by telling him she
writes under several pen names, but would rather he not read any of her potboilers. More suspicious is Don's sister-in-law, Betty (Frances Fisher), a recovering alcoholic who begins to doubt Linda's cover story when she mistakenly identifies Anna Karenina as the author of a famous novel rather than a character in one. Don's 17-year-old son (Chad Allen) also has his suspicions, which multiply rapidly when Linda keeps trying to fix him little "snacks" that taste funny.
